Selling CDs, Selling DVDs & Record Collection

Princeton Record Exchange has been buying thousands of music and movie collections since 1980. We buy private collections, estate collections, reviewer/radio station surplus, and entire store inventories of CDs, DVDs, LPs, video games, and other emerging formats such as Blu-Ray. Sell CDs and Sell DVDs? No CD, DVD or record collection is too large! As an active member in the Better Business Bureau, we are committed to treating our customers professionally with prompt payment for collections.

To find out what we can pay for your DVDs, CDs, and record collection:

  1. Call us at 609-924-3472 to discuss your collection with an appraiser, or
  2. Bring your collection to our Princeton, NJ store, or
  3. Describe your collection online at our CDs, DVDs, or Vinyl questionnaire pages.

To learn more about selling DVDs and music, visit Sell DVDs Info, Sell CDs InfoSelling LP Collection Info or Selling DVD Audio Info. Also see other formats that we buy below.

Please Note: We would love to evaluate your collection, and will give you a free appraisal, but be aware that there are many titles that we cannot use due to lack of demand, overstock, or condition quality.

Please do not send any merchandise without our prior approval.

Selling CDs:

When you Sell CDs to us, we pay up to $3 for strong selling full-length CDs in excellent condition (more for certain titles in greater demand). However, there are many titles that we may only offer 10 cents to 50 cents for due to oversupply, lesser demand and/or poorer condition quality. There are some titles that we cannot use at all. Prices are subject to change over time.

We pay $5 or more for certain titles in greater demand including CDs on the Mosaic and Mobile Fidelity labels and other rarities.

To sell CDs for top-dollar, they must be in excellent shape; no scratches on the discs, cracks in the cases, or rips in the liner notes.

To see examples of many desirable artists and labels we are interested in buying on CD such as Rock, Jazz and Classical, visit our complete list of Music Genres.

If you would like to get an appraisal or sell your CDs online, see our Online Selling CDs Questionnaire.

Selling DVDs

We will pay up to $3 for many strong selling full-length DVDs in excellent condition, more for many box sets and some deluxe issues such as Criterion titles as well as certain Kino and Disney titles. However, there are a high percentage of titles that we may only offer 10 cents to 50 cents for; due to oversupply, lesser demand and/or poorer condition quality. There are some titles that we cannot use at all. Prices are subject to change over time. There are also many titles that we are not able to buy at all, especially those not in near mint (almost like new) condition. The discs, liner notes and cases must be in excellent condition to get full price. All DVDs must be playable in North America (region 1 or region-free, NTSC).

We may pay more for most Criterion Collection DVDs and Kino DVDs!

We are interested in all genres including Action, Horror, Family, Drama, Disney, Foreign, and much more!

For more information about selling DVDs, please visit our We buy DVDs Collection Info page. If you are ready to sell your collection, call our store at 609-924-DISC, or proceed to our Online Used Movies Questionnaire.

Sell Record Collection

When you sell a record collection, we typically pay from 50 cents to $2.00 for strong-selling LPs. Please Note: while many LPs are of great interest to us, the vast majority of those in today's market have little to no monetary value. The fastest and easiest way of determining the general value of your collection is to call us.

We are always looking for sought-after titles, and there are some rarities that fetch $10.00 to $100.00 or more. On the other hand, there are some LPs that we can not use at all because they are scratched, weak-sellers, or we have too many of them. LPs that are scratched, scuffed, or moldy will get only a fraction of our top prices. When we offer to buy a record collection, we base our offer on supply and demand, conditions of vinyl and cover, as well as other market conditions.

We buy Rock, Jazz, Alternative, Soul, Funk and many other genres of music. For more information about selling vinyl records, please visit our Sell LPs info page. If you are ready to sell your collection, call our store at 609-924-DISC, or proceed to our online selling questionnaire.

To see examples of many desirable artists and labels we are interested in buying on LP, please visit our list of Music Genres

There are too many details relating to the LP market to list on this page. For more specific info, please see our sell records info page, or call us at 609-924-3472 to discuss your collection.

While we buy many CD and DVD collections through the mail, most LP collections that we buy come from customers that live within 2-3 hours from Princeton, NJ. You are welcome to fill out our sell records questionnaire or call us to discuss your collection, but please be aware that most records do not have a high enough value to make shipping worth while. It is generally best to bring them to our Princeton, NJ store, but we do recommend that you speak with one of our appraisers first, or see LP genres of interest to us and LPs we have little interest in to make sure we don't waste your time.

Sorry, we do not buy or sell 78s.

Selling SACD (Super Audio CD), Selling DVD Audio (DVD-A) and more...

We are very interested in increasing our selection of emerging formats, such as SACD and DVD Audio with our customers interested in buying and selling SACD and selling DVD-A. When you are selling SACD (Super Audio CD) and DVD-A (DVD Audio), we pay up to $4 per disc. While very interested in new audio formats, Princeton Record Exchange is always also interested in you selling CDs and selling sacd (Super Audio CD) and selling DVD Audio to our store. For further information on selling SACD titles or any other formats, please visit our selling SACD page.

Selling Video Games:

We are always looking to enhance our Collection of video games. If you're interested in selling games online, please visit our selling Video Games online questionnaire. We pay up to $4 per game for many Xbox, Playstation 2, Gamecube and Gameboy games.

Demand for specific games and platforms change quickly, especially when new versions come out. Prices may change greatly without notice. We are only interested in games from current game systems.

Selling your Laser Disc collection

We pay 25 to 50 cents for many Laser Discs. We are uncertain how long we will continue to buy Laser Discs due to the expanding market in selling DVDs and selling CDs. Because of their relatively low value, we will only buy these at our store; sorry, no mail collections.

We Do Not Accept Unauthorized Merchandise

Please do not send any merchandise before calling, or receiving a response from our online questionnaire. We do not accept nor will be held responsible for unauthorized merchandise. 

Again, to list the titles you wish to sell us, please visit buy my CDs, buy my DVDs, buy my records or buy my video games.
